Information for our survival: LIS and Climate Change

Thanks Ayoola White for an excellent LIS student blog post “Information for Our Survival: LIS and Climate Change.”   A MUST READ for everyone, here is a quote I liked:

“These are grim times indeed, but I for one would like to highlight what we can do, not just what we cannot do or what our obstacles are. As hackneyed as this sounds, this is the only planet we have. Those of us who consider climate change a threat and want to do something about it are in the majority. Furthermore, scientists and politicians are not the only people who have influence in this area. We as information professionals have important contributions to make. I believe that we can make those contributions using the same creativity we use to address the other community issues that we address so expertly.”

Also appreciated her reply in the comments section, including her TuTu quote 🙂
